Description: Cardamom essential oil is steam distilled from the seeds of the Cardamom plant, also sometimes known as amomum elettaria. The plant is from the Zingiberaceae family, like Ginger, but the rhizome (fleshy root) does not produce a commercial essential oil, as the rhizome of Ginger does.Cardamom's essential oil content is highest in the unripe seed pods, so they are harvested before ripening. Cardamom essential oil is a colorless to pale yellow liquid with a sweet-spicy, warming fragrance, and a woody-balsamic undertone. Cardamom essential oil is a relative newcomer to aromatherapy, but is being appreciated for its digestive-stimulant properties and its soothing effect on the lungs. It is used either in an abdominal massage, similarly to Fennel essential oil, or in combination with Eucalyptus essential oil as an inhalation of as a foot rub.
